A wonderful update has come to the Disneyland mobile app that is set to make mobile ordering so much better! There is now a available now filter that shows locations that have a pickup window of now. No more scrolling through all the options to find the locations to pick up a bite to eat right now. In addition, there is a “near by” filter that will allow guests to see options that are close to their current location to place an order. – https://dlnewstoday.com/2023/04/new-available-now-filter-and-more-added-to-mobile-ordering-on-disneyland-my-disney-experience-apps/
